Hello, I am scheduled for THR Anterior on Feb 23. When I went to the Orthopedic Surgeon‘s office we made new X-rays and he then pulled up the first X-rays he could find of my hips. They were almost exactly seven years ago! It was shortly after the first X-ray that I had my first hip injection guided with x-ray. Injections worked great at first, but over time became less helpful. My last one was in November and it didn’t work at all. After looking at the new x-ray I can see the reason why - there isn’t any cushion in my left hip. My doctor told me the only choice was THR and that I could have it now or later. I choose now.
